What is a Module in Python
Let’s think of a library example. In the library, all books are not the same place. Each book type is placed in some special places in the library. So consider module as a code library.
Creating a Module
Step 1 ) Click the project and then “New” and then “Python File” .
Step 2 ) Let’s give a name to our Module. We gave “my_module” .
Step 3 ) Let’s write a simple function to our new module.
Step 4 ) Importing our module with the import keyword and as you can see we have access to our function in our module .
Step 5 ) Let’s run the program. And you see the result.
The dir() Function
We use the dir() function to list all function names or variable names in our module.
Re – Naming a Module
You can use the as keyword to re – name a module .
